Im a new mum, I gave birth to my gorgeous little boy Lincoln on Saturday 05th february! Ever since then all I hear my partner go on about is his other son who is two years old, all I hear day in and day out is how much they look alike and how he wishes that my son would turn out like his and he keeps going on and on about his other son and how cute everything is that he does, Yet he is a really naughty child that my partner wont tell off like he does his daughter and its absolutaly doing my head in. To the point where I really am starting to resent my partners son. My partner even calls our son by his other son's name, its as though my son is constantly going to be living in this child's shadow even though there is nothing special about him. Its driving me crazy to the point where I really dont want anything to do with this child and Im starting to hate him! I know it sounds really bad, but the child doesnt want to know me either now since my son was born and to be quite honest I dont care.
Everythign was fine with my partners son before the baby came along apart from the fact that it seemed my partner favouritised him over his daughter. I really dont know if im just hormonal and am feeling like my sons second best to his first son or whether I am getting minor post natal depression that is making me reject my partner's child instead of our own.
Its really starting to get me down and i dont want it to come in between me and my partner because he really is just amazing and our son is fantastic. Please can anyone help me???
